Me Looking Back At You

I've been thinking about writing this one for awhile.

This is an essay detailing how people find this site.

Most people come over from my sister's blog.

For those who don't know who she is, Deana is not only a stay at home mom, but she is also a professional writer.

She writes a weekly article for the Baytown Sun in Baytown, TX that appears on her blog every Wednesday.

She also writes for private and well-known magazines.

Because I have written quite a bit about jazz organ-including Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff and others, I get quite a few hits for people looking for information about that. Through my tracker, I have been able to determine that the people that tend to spend the most time on my site for those subjects are people in Europe and elsewhere, where blues and jazz is more popular.

Some are repeat visitors that seem to have this address on their favorites list.

Because I wrote an article a few months ago entitled 'Hey, Hey, We're The Monkees' I've had several visitors come by using that as a search.

That article had nothing at all to do with The Monkees, it had to do with an ad for a keyboard that is no longer made that used someone dressed up in a gorilla costume.

The title of this blog used to be 'Jazz Organ'. I changed it to 'Almost Forty' because if you searched for 'Jazz Organ' all these articles would come up not having anything much to do with jazz organ, and that wasn't right.

Another frequent visitor is myself.

Is it just me, or is it easier to catch typos after the article has been published?

I also just happen to like the way I write.

Searches for Ms. B's in Austin are also a popular link, those went up during the last couple of weeks. Ms. B's is a nice cajun food restaurant in East Austin that I reviewed in this blog a few months ago and was impressed with.

The occasional articles I've done about the auto industry have generated some visitors looking for Delphi or GM. One of those links was from a Delphi server, indicating at least one employee was looking outside of the company for info about the situation.

I've also been getting some attention with 'laurel-crowned'.

There actually is a blog called Laurel Crowned, but the connection to my site is a several week story I wrote called 'The Laurel Crowned Princess".

Finally, I've had a couple of referrals that I just don't understand...they need no further comment:

'i'm my own son'

'forty years old b****es'
